My inspiration came in the form of an email from The Container Store which advertised the elfa closet system on sale for 30% off. Woohoo! Have you ever used this simple but super functional closet organizing system? It's awesome! We installed this system in all the small closets in our previous home to utilize the vertical wall space and expand our storage options. But it's not just for closets. I currently have the platinum line in my laundry room and we created a wall-mounted desk area in my son's room. There are myriad uses and components with a variety of finishes.
But back to organizing my jewelry... I created my storage solution using elfa door and wall rack components in white.
I quickly installed it on the outside of my closet door with a helping hand from my husband. I think it took us longer to find a park at The Container Store than actually installing the system!
- First things first - we installed the standard rod using the over the door hooks which means we can take it with us if we ever move. Once set, the system comes together in no time at all.
- I added two skinny utility boards (~17" x 2.5") and hooks for necklaces at the top. The top board holds extra long necklaces. The lower board holds shorter necklaces. I placed 14 hooks on each board.
- I placed a third board under the necklaces and inserted 4 plastic bins for bracelets and watches.
- I inserted two slim hooks directly into door standard below bracelet organizer. I found multi-pouch earring organizer which hangs from hooks.
